A Georgia Employer’s Statutory Bond is a type of surety bond required by the Georgia Department of Labor (DOL) for certain employers registered under the state’s Employment Security Law.  The specific bond amount is determined by the Georgia Department of Labor. The cost of the surety bond is usually between 1% and 3% of the bond amount, subject to a minimum premium and fees of $150.

Important Information About the Surety Bond

Who Needs It:

This bond applies to employers who have opted for reimbursable coverage for unemployment insurance instead of paying traditional unemployment taxes. This option is typically chosen by non-profit organizations andGeorgia Employer's Statutory Bond employee leasing companies.

What the Georgia Employer’s Statutory Bond Guarantees:

The bond ensures the employer will:

  • File all required reports on time (e.g., wage reports, unemployment claims)
  • Comply with all regulations set forth by the Employment Security Law
  • Pay all unemployment contributions owed to the state, including interest and penalties if applicable

How the Surety Bond Works:

If an employer breaches these conditions, the DOL can file a claim against the bond. This compels the surety company that issued the bond to compensate the DOL for the financial losses incurred. This could include unpaid contributions, penalties, or benefits owed to unemployed workers. In essence, the bond protects the state and employees from potential financial losses caused by a non-compliant employer. If the surety company pays a claim on the bond, it will seek restitution from the bond principal and its indemnitors.

Additional Information:
